I don't usually post a new thread, but I'm super sad right now!!
I had my decor all planned out, and purchased - my wedding is only 2 months away now. So my plan was to use Balloons filled with helium (like those really large round balloons) as centerpeices, they would be kinda floating about 3 feet above the tables...so I emailed the resort back in May - they said oh yes, we can blow up the balloons with helium. So I went ahead and special ordered the balloons, made these luminary bags to attach them to (to keep them from floating away), bought the twine and was just really excited about it.
Today the WC replied to an email of mine from last week in which I was just reconfirming details, and she said we don't have helium, but we can still blow up your balloons...but that means they wont float! WTF!!
I know, I know, everyone says it'll still be nice without the balloons, but I'm gutted about it.
I originally wanted the chinese lanterns but they told me they can't do those because they have no where to hang them (hence balloons).
What should I do? Just use the luminaries and forget about it?
I might try to make something like these garlands, but they still need to be hung, and if they have nowhere to hang things, that's a problem.
I just really didn't want my wedding to be cookie cutter and boring..
